As per the report by Patently Apple, the new foldable design from the company has a double fold tablet with a slide-out keyboard.
The design patent file does not confirm the material or construction details about the double-fold design and the mechanism of the slide-out keyboard.
Samsung working with Microsoft and Intel as a part of the Horseshoe Bend Project is not new. The project was announced back in October last year and as a part of the project, Samsung is supposed to make 17-inch foldable laptop displays to Wintel partners.
As per the diagram in the patent application, the dual fold design looks similar to Galaxy Z Fold but with a bigger footprint. The entire unit is fitted with two hinges which looks similar to Surface Book hinges.
Apart from this, a keyboard has also been shown in the image which is expected to feature a slide-out mechanism.
For now this is just a concept design for which Samsung has been granted a patent. It is still unsure whether this dual fold design will ever make it to the market in some form whether it be in smartphones, tablets or foldable notebooks.
